    I have an 500 GB external hooked up to my Time Machine which stores my movies. If needed could I daisy chain using firewire to another external?

    Thanks.

    Yes, Firewire is designed to be used this way.

    I can't see any trouble with that at all. Even in a daisy chain each drive is identified in the system as a unique device, so TM will continue to use the device it does now with no difficulty.

    Should work. That's the way FW is set up to work.

    But no promises.

    Try it and see.
